A large piece of history has moved back into Winterville. Sunday marked the return of the train depot.
It took about two hours to move it and two years to bring the caboose back to it's rightful home.
It had been sitting at the Pitt County Fairgrounds since 1983 in an effort to save it.
The train depot was a major hub which stopped rail service in 1969.
Organizers raised about 70 thousand dollars to get it moved. They are looking to raise $183,000 dollars for renovations.
Derek Allen, the project manager, says "It's a wonderful thing to have this historical building back in Winterville where it belongs."
He goes on to say, "It would be a great, great item for all of Winterville to use, and to be thankful for."
The caboose will sit on a piece of donated land by Mary Virgina Langston, a former resident now living in DC.
